‘Let’s cancel Bret Easton Ellis’: is millennial ‘cancel culture’ really a thing?

The author annoyed young people this week by criticising the practice of withdrawing admiration for offending celebrities

The novelist Bret Easton Ellis annoyed young people in an interview this week. I mean, what is millennial culture? he asked. Theres no writing. They dont care about literature. None of them reads books. The only culture they have, he said, is cancel culture. But what is that?

Someone said it about me today, Lets cancel Bret Easton Ellis, he explained. The word gets used all the time, Were going to cancel this person, she shouldnt have tweeted that, shes cancelled. Indeed: where once you might cancel a train booking or a TV show, it became possible in 2013 or so to cancel a human being, meaning to withdraw your admiration.

This is, arguably, in line with the sense of cancel whereby a legal document is annulled: the offending celebrity is rendered invalid as a source of enjoyment or wisdom.

The phrase cancel culture became mainstream in 2018 as more and more humans were officially cancelled. Easton Ellis might be reassured, though, to remember that cancel comes from the Latincancelli, cross-hatching, and literally means to obliterate writing by drawing lines through it. If millennials buy his books to do that, hell still get the royalties.
